Choose Light Colors
If your small kitchen has dark cabinets, it’s time to upgrade them to white or another light color. This can be done easily by painting them yourself or even by replacing them all together. The lighter the space, the larger it looks.
Update Your Countertops
Old, dated countertops make a kitchen look small and dark, but bright new countertops can change the entire look of your kitchen. To make the space larger and to find a return on your investment, choose granite or quartz or marble. Choose a light color with a little design to it. This allows you to create a chic space big on style.
Get Rid of Clutter
You want the convenience of keeping your toaster and coffee pot and other items on the counter, but they clutter up your space and make it look smaller. Now is a great time to invest in something like a rolling bar cart or island you can store in the pantry, laundry room, or a closet when it’s not in use. Keep countertop items on this cart so all you have to do is plug them in for use when you roll it out. Your counters stay clean and chic, and your kitchen looks larger.
Making your kitchen feel larger is as simple as choosing brighter colors and bidding farewell to clutter. If you can consolidate your space by having a wall oven installed and keeping your microwave mounted above the stove, you can create more counter space. Everything works together to create the illusion of more space no matter how small a kitchen is in reality. Employ just one or all of these tips and see how much larger your kitchen feels.
